Fenton Art Glass Presents. . . August Jewelry Specials!

August is another warm month, but it usually signals the ending of summer and the approaching autumn. As we wind down the summer, we are pleased to continue our Jewelry Specials with great discounts on handcrafted jewelry from our remaining inventory. Each Fenton Art Glass Made in America bead bears the signature of handcraftsmanship; those slight variations that convey distinction, character and charm. Many of Fenton's unique glass colors and historic treatments were used to create the beads and earrings. Because of the handmade process, size may vary slightly, but average 9/16" in diameter. Most of these beads have just one remaining in stock. Available while supplies last! NOTE: Please refer to the ordering instructions below. Orders are no longer processed online through our shopping cart.

NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .
We are pleased to offer new Limited Edition selections for pre-orders. Each piece features a hand painted design and will be signed, numbered and dated by one of our talented designers. These Limited Edition pieces were handcrafted by Mosser Glass, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop. However, the Cobalt Iceberg Paperweight is a Mosser Glass product.

Michelle Kibbe has created a marvelous scene of Canada Geese on this impressive approximately 11.25" Opal Satin Vase. As you can see from the photos above, her landscape encircles the vase. A pair of geese stand watch on one side of the vase. Michelle captures the essence of a lone goose about to land near the water on the other side. The hand painted details are meticulous and so true to life that you can almost hear their distinctive honking call. Did you know. . . The Canada Goose is known for its loud "honk", unmistakable appearance and for flying in a distinctive V-formation. The Canada Goose (male) gander can weigh as much as 14 pounds with a wing spread of up to five feet. Each Canada Geese Vase is $225.


This little gray Mouse is ready to lead us to a square dance or lead us to the next season! Kim Barley's delightful design includes a hand lettered message: "the Path to Fall" on the ears, complete with autumn leaves and a black crow. You'll love the hand painted details. . . from the white polka dotted red neckerchief to the brown coveralls, red shoes, as well as pumpkin and corn accents. As always, Kim added her whimsical touch to the expression with a large smile and adorable eyes. Each Path to Fall Mouse Figurine is $80.

Our Opal Satin Hurricane Candle Lamp provides the perfect canvas for Robin Spindler's tender scene of a white mare with her foal. The overall size is 10.5", with the shade measuring 9.125" tall. This shape has been included in the
Fenton line for many decades. Robin's hand painted design includes a fenced paddock framed by lush pine trees and a blue sky background. Robin added delicate leaves with gold highlights on the base to complete this Limited Edition set. Each Mare 'n Foal Hurricane Candle Lamp is $160.

 

Pre-orders for the Canada Geese Vase, Path to Fall Mouse Figurine and Mare 'n Foal Hurricane Candle Lamp will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, August 6, 2018. To pre-order these Limited Editions, please contact Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or send an email to: purchasing@fentongiftshop.com and include the names of the items you want to purchase in the subject line as well as your full name and daytime phone number.

Robin Spindler continues her tender theme of a mother's love with her beautiful, yet unique, hand painted design on this elegant 11.75" Opal Satin Vase. What a statement this vase will make when displayed in your home! The meticulously executed details of the two giraffes are a testament to Robin's artistic talent! Can you see how Robin handled the large size of this animal? One side of the vase has the mother's bottom half... while the other side shows her head bending down to nuzzle her young calf. Did you know. . . As in cattle, female giraffes are called cows, males are called bulls and baby giraffes are called calves. During birth, a calf will drop to the ground, since mother giraffes give birth while standing up. Despite their long necks, giraffes have the same number of neck vertebrae as humans—just seven. Each individual vertebra is super-sized, measuring up to ten inches long.  We think you'll agree that Robin has captured the beauty of this majestic animal with her hand painted design. Each Mama Love - Giraffe Vase  is $225.

Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design is simply delightful and is sure to create many smiles! A gray and white tabby kitten appears to be playing "peek-a-boo" over top of clay pots filled with beautiful white and pink flowers. This 7" tall x 5.5" wide Cobalt Iceberg Paperweight was made by Mosser Glass. Michelle's signature appears on the bottom right corner of this piece, along with the date of "2018". Each Peek-a-boo Tabby Cat Iceberg Paperweight is $100.


You'll be ready for Fall when you display this 5.75" Black Ghost! Designed by Kim Barley, this figurine features a unique rendition of a kitten's face peeking over top of a large pumpkin that has a bow of red hearts.

 

Kim added large stylized sunflowers to frame this scene and a small sprig of autumn leaves on the back of the figurine. Note the smaller pumpkin with the "Oh My!" expression! The words "Happy Fall!" are hand lettered and as always, Kim added a wonderful whimsical smile to the face of the ghost! Each Happy Fall! Ghost Figurine is $120.

 

Pre-orders for the Mama Love - Giraffe Vase, Peek-a-boo Tabby Cat Iceberg Paperweight and Happy Fall! Ghost Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, August 8, 2018.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or unique items from Fenton's history through our weekly eBay auctions.

 

These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, August 8. Items featured this week. . .

 

Here's a splendid one-of-a-kind had painted Burmese vase (about 8.5" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. The lush hand painted chrysanthemums in realistic shades of pink and purple completely encircle the vase, and the green leaves
and foliage are true to life in every respect. Burmese is a classic Fenton color, first offered in 1969-70 after the formula, which contains pure gold, was perfected by Fenton chemist Charles "Charlie" Goe.

Here's a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a unique piece of Fenton history combined with the skills and talents of a Fenton artist. Fenton artist Kim Barley designed and hand painted this one-of-a-kind Athens Block brick. Kim's hand
painted scene superimposes a likeness of the original Fenton Art Glass factory on an outline of the state of West Virginia, and the West Virginia state flower (Rhododendron) and state bird (Cardinal) are also depicted. Note the detailed hand painted "Handmade in America by Fenton" logo that was important part of Fenton's history for several decades. This "Athens Block" brick (8.67" long, 3.75" tall, 9.85 lbs.) was recovered from the Fenton factory site during the recent demolition of the plant, so it has the look of its 110+ years, as you can see in the photos that show all sides of this brick. Our research into the history of bricks from the Athens Brick Co. of Athens, Ohio, revealed that these Athens Block bricks were used in the construction of the original Fenton Art Glass Company plant during the fall of 1906. This unique hand painted brick is identified, dated and signed: "Kim Barley 2018 OOAK."

Here's a great opportunity to acquire some interesting examples of Fenton history. These two copper printing plates were used in the production of the 1947 Fenton catalog ... more than 70 years ago! The copper plate depicting the No. 893 Rose Jar measures 5.875" x 6.125". The copper plate depicting the No. 194 11" 2-Handled Vase measures 6.5" x 3.125". These copper plates are mounted on wood that is about 1" thick. The Coin Dot pattern was first developed by Fenton Art Glass in the 1940s, and Cranberry Opalescent examples of Coin Dot soon became favorites among collectors nationwide. The Coin Dot pieces depicted were in the Fenton line about 1947-1952. These copper printing plates have been cleaned, but they do have some very light scratching on the surface. We'll also include some photocopies of pages from the 1947 Fenton catalog as they were used for illustrations in the book Fenton Glass: The Second 25 Years.
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, August 8, 2018.
